Omagh Bomb Research

Families Moving On have commissioned a distinctive piece of research which sets to explore the human cost of the Omagh bomb. Representatives from Nursing, Police, Clergy, Business and Voluntary sector have been appointed to oversee the research entitled "A Unique View of a Shared Experience". The research aims to explore the physical, social, emotional and psychological impact on the individuals who were in Omagh that day, whilst examining the learning from such an experience

We wish to acknowledge the views, opinions and attitudes of those who were involved. The research will increase understanding and awareness of the needs of victims 14 years on and the impact it has had on individual lives. The research will also bring together the victims groups in the local area. We will keep members of FMO up to date on the progress of the research. Hopefully, with the help with our members and other groups in the locality we can help develop a worthy piece of research.
